This is Bella, 40, a resident of GMA, Cavite City, Philippines. She manages her own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.
Bella operates a market stall. She sells fruit in the community market. She buys large quantities of fruits and sells it per kilo. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.
To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a 15,000 PHP loan. She will utilize the loan to buy more fruit in order to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.
Bella dreams to expand her business and hopes to have a good life through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.
* All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay micro finance loans.
